Home Improvement Projects to Boost Property Value

When it comes to homeownership, it’s common to want to enhance the aesthetic appeal and financial value of your home. Some improvements to your home can make your living space more inviting, and often more practical, while also adding significant value to your home.

Whether you’re planning to sell in the future or simply want to invest in your home to make better fit your needs, certain home improvement projects can boost both the aesthetic and the market value of your home more than others.

Home improvement projects to improve property value

As a luxury custom home builder, we often meet customers who want to upgrade their home with the view of selling it or making it a more functional space for their family as their needs change.

Here are some of our top home improvement ideas that can help you give your home a new lease on life or give you the most bang for your buck when you decide to sell based on our many decades of experience building and renovating homes in the Asheville area.

Kitchen Remodeling

The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, making it a prime candidate for improvement.

Upgrading your kitchen can involve various tasks such as replacing outdated appliances, installing new countertops, updating cabinets, and replacing the flooring.

Larger scale plans might include changing the layout of the kitchen or extending the space to add new features such as a waterfall island, a walk-in pantry, better lighting, or additional storage.

A modern and well-designed kitchen improves your daily living experience and also appeals to potential buyers, making it a worthwhile investment.

Bathroom Renovation

Similar to kitchens, bathrooms play a crucial role in a home’s overall value as they are one of the most used rooms in the house. A well-designed and updated bathroom can significantly enhance your property’s marketability.

Consider replacing outdated fixtures, updating the tiles, flooring, and paint, replacing the vanity with a more on-trend style, and adding a more stylish, luxury feel to the bathroom. If your bathroom has a composite shower/tub combos, then consider removing it completely and replacing it with a chic, spa-like shower.

For family homes, it’s worth remembering that a bathtub will often be highly sought after – so make sure you have a good one in at least one of the bathrooms!

A powder room refresh can go a long way, too.

Boost curb appeal

First impressions matter, and the exterior of your home is the first thing potential buyers or guests see. Investing in curb appeal can include landscaping, exterior painting to freshen up your property, or even adding a new front door.

A well-maintained and visually appealing exterior creates a positive perception of your home and adds immediate value.

Basement or Attic Conversion

If you have unused space in your basement or attic, converting it into a functional living area can significantly increase your home’s square footage can be a huge plus.

Whether it becomes an extra bedroom, a home office, or a recreational space, this transformation adds tangible value to your property and can make it more attractive to potential buyers who want a home with some extra space.

Keep in mind that finishing a basement, which is considered below-grade square footage, may require a permit and must maintain a ceiling height of at least seven feet. It is best to avoid overdoing below-grade square footage with lots of bells and whistles because below-grade square footage is often only valued at 50% of above-grade square footage.

Adding a Deck or Patio

Adding a deck or patio creates an additional area for relaxation and entertainment, and outdoor space has been identified as one of the main features that modern buyers look for when buying a home. Since our climate is so temperate, decks or patios that include an outdoor kitchen or fireplace bring extra appeal.

This feature can be particularly appealing to potential buyers looking for a well-rounded property with impressive indoor and outdoor living spaces for hosting guests.
